Talk about concussion.  That was a knee AND a foot to the face.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale

Certainly not the best College Dunk of the year.

Mostly because this kid is a SOPHOMORE in high school

No doubt about it. I would've assumed the same (based on the court), but saw someone tweet that earlier.

Awesome dunk, though the new angle that's been posted here kinda ruins it since with the ref out of the way, you can clearly see he pushes off the kids arms to get more height (0:06 in).

The original highlight was from behind and slightly to the left, so the ref blocked that part, it looked like he just straight cleared him with like a 7 foot vertical ha.

Still, amazing dunk, that's the definition of getting put on a poster. although mabey we should change the term to "youtube'd" or just "tubed"

Also, a poll since it's pretty split on most sites. Offensive foul or not?

Cases against offensive foul: defender was moving when kid started takeoff.

cases for offensive foul: some maintain the defender did get set just prior to impact. some were saying that pushing off the crossed arms of defender with foot, even if unintentional was offensive foul.

I'm torn, but I'm tempted to say no foul just because a dunk that sick should stand on it's own  8)

Yeah he clearly got some help on that one, you can see him rise up more after he stopped elevating.  No way anyone can be looking down at the rim after contact without a push.

I was definitely thinking this was a High School game.  I was also thinking it was a charge.  The guy had the spot but not sure where in the paint he was from this angle.
